Everything You Need To Know About SUSE Linux Enterprise Server

In a fast-paced world like today with increased dependence on digital solutions, SUSE comes along bearing outstanding features to accelerate cloud solutions. SUSE services can be an efficient, committed open-source service that enterprises can use to store, perform container management, and undergo other edge software solutions.

Background On SUSE

SUSE is a corporation that was created in 1992 in Germany. Software-und-System-Entwicklung is the German name, which can also be understood as Software and Systems Development. SUSE developed the software known as SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES), although many just use that moniker when referring to that company’s distinctive operating system. 

SUSE is made to function on workstations, mainframes, and servers. Additionally, SUSE is available for desktop users too. 

Workstations, servers, and mainframes can all use the SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES). It provides enterprise solutions to big businesses based on the openSUSE project. Because SLES is an enterprise solution, it has a lengthier release cycle and frequently lacks the newest features for stability concerns.

SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) For Rancher

A flexible and simple-to-manage platform, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) enables developers and administrators to deploy mission-critical workloads locally, in the cloud, and at the edge. It is a Linux operating system that can be configured to fit any environment and has been enhanced for speed, security, and dependability. 

SUSE Rancher is a multi-cluster container management software that is native to Kubernetes. It provides the major functions listed below to handle these issues. In addition to provisioning and templates, configuration and lifecycle version management, visibility, and diagnostics, SUSE Rancher offers straightforward, consistent cluster operations. 

For all the managed clusters, regardless of where they are operating, SUSE Rancher integrates and uses existing directory services to automate procedures and apply uniform identity and access management (IAM) and security standards. 

SUSE Rancher offers a wide range of services for developing, deploying, and scaling containerized applications, including app packaging, logging, monitoring, and service mesh.

Key Features

1. High Availability 

You can set up two-node High Availability clusters on your SUSE Linux Enterprise Point of Service servers. Each cluster node will also require a separate subscription to the SUSE Linux Enterprise High Availability Extension in such a situation.

2. Virtualization

You can run more than one virtual SUSE Linux Enterprise Point of Service instance on a single physical server with an administration server or branch server subscription as long as the prerequisites outlined above are satisfied and all instances are a part of the same Point of Service infrastructure. 

For instance, you can host a branch server as a virtual instance on a combined Point of Service and branch server device or an image build server as a virtual machine on the administration server. However, SUSE Linux Point of Service subscriptions cannot be used for general-purpose server or client virtualization.

3. Advanced Network Security 

A built-in key server improves encryption management and protects data on remote storage volumes. Keep the encryption keys for the SAP filesystem or SAP HANA data storage volumes on a network of hundreds or thousands of servers.

Each one talks with the key server to obtain a key or certificate to automatically unlock the volumes, maintaining data security and speeding up system restart recovery times. Third-party key servers are also supported by the Key Management Interoperability Protocol (KMIP)

SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) For Neuvector

SUSE helps manage Kubernetes security risks, secure its container infrastructures, and stop threats with NeuVector, a full lifecycle container security solution. Suse NeuVector’s continuous container security and compliance platform makes safeguarding data from the pipeline to production easier, enforces compliance, and offers total visibility and automated controls for defense against known and unknowable threats.

NeuVector is the only Kubernetes-native container security solution that provides immediate protection from all vulnerabilities while providing a thorough risk profile of known vulnerabilities.

With NeuVector, you can drill down into the packet details for each container as they scale up and down and display summary connection data for each one. NeuVector can automatically record and show the packet information when danger is identified, making it simple to conduct further research. The following section includes some of the key features.

Key Features

1. Network Security And Segmentation 

Network Security And Segmentation 

All traffic going into and out of a container is protected, segmented, and inspected by NeuVector. This covers traffic from one container to another, ingress from outside sources into containers, and egress from containers to outside programs and the internet. The remedy seeks to defend your apps against internal application-level threats like DNS and DDoS.

2. Automatic Threat Detection

You may automate the development of security policies using the NeuVector technology to safeguard production application workloads. The solution also allows you to declare an application security policy at any point in the pipeline and automate and maintain run-time security rules using Kubernetes custom resource definitions (CRDs).

3. Compliance And Auditing 

For PCI-DSS, GDPR, HIPAA, and other regulations, NeuVector offers detection capabilities and security policy enforcement that avoid PHI and PII exposure, go above and beyond standards, and make reporting simple.
